Tufin Hogs Awards

{pp}Tufin Technologies – security lifecycle management solution industry leaders, has won awards for solutions which enhance security, ensure business continuity and increase operational efficiency

Tufin, represented locally by Blue Turtle Technologies, has been racking up the accolades recently. Following the award for “Best Security Lifecycle Management Solution 2009” by InfoSecurity Products Guide, Tufin’s SecureChange™ Workflow and SecureTrack™ has now been named "Best Enterprise Security Solution 2009” by SC Magazine UK, and also received a highly commended in the SC magazine "Best Security Management Solution" category.

This follows the successful launch of the Tufin Open Platform (TOP). TOP is an open technology architecture that allows virtually any networking and security product to easily integrate with Tufin. The TOP alliance includes the technological and business framework enabling customers to centralize their security operations, auditing and change automation around Tufin.

Tufin strives to set the standards against which Security Lifecycle Management solutions are measured, and has done so with the Tufin solution set. Tufin’s Security Lifecycle Management solutions automate policy management for leading firewall and networking vendors including Check Point Software, Juniper, Cisco, Fortinet, F5 and BlueCoat, resulting in more manageable, efficient and cost effective security operations. The solution set includes SecureTrack™, which helps operations teams to control and manage policy changes, analyze risks, and ensure business continuity.

With SecureTrack™, managers easily understand the big picture and align operations with corporate and Government security standards. The SecureChange™ Workflow, also included in Tufin’s solution set, manages the entire lifecycle of a policy change request from submission through design, risk analysis, approval, implementation and auditing. All changes are checked for compliance with configurable corporate security directives as well as industry best practices and regulatory requirements and are recorded in order to maintain a robust audit trail. The recently launched TOP enables technology partners to easily integrate a wide range of network devices with Tufin’s SecureTrack™ and SecureChange™ Workflow solutions. TOP provides partners and customers with a Software Development Kit (SDK) for plug-in development that implement the configuration retrieval logic for each network device integrated with Tufin’s solutions. Through TOP, SecureTrack™ and SecureChange™ Workflow can be extended to provide automated policy management capabilities for any network device, from any vendor.
